Essentials Range | Pension Drawdown Company

Our low cost package for you

Have you been meaning to sort out your pensions? Do they need explaining? Not sure how they’re performing? Would you like all your pension pots in one fully managed portfolio?

* Be aware of the small print because some providers may have extra hidden charges for changing your income amount, switching funds, additional statements or early exit penalties.

How do I get started?

Before you continue, you must:

  • Be aged 55 or over
  • Be a permanent UK resident
  • Have a minimum pension transfer value £50,000

With Pension Drawdown and Royal London it’s easy to bring your pensions and other investments into one easy-to-use online account. You simply contact us with your personal details and information about your existing pensions that you would like to transfer in from other providers and we’ll take care of the rest.

You can transfer SIPPs, personal pensions and most workplace pensions as long as you haven’t started to take income from them – known as ‘drawdown’. We can also accept transfers of defined benefit, or ‘final salary’, workplace pensions but please contact us separately about these.


How long does it take?

Most pension transfers will take no longer than 3-4 weeks to complete but some of the more complex cases may take a little longer, around 2-3 months. Once we know more about your circumstances, we will be in a better position to give you more accurate timescales.

Our set up fee is only £1,000 or 1% whichever is higher. We will check any exit fees and existing guarantees with your current pension providers to make sure you do not lose any benefits as a result of transferring.

I can't find my pension information - what should I do?

This is a common occurrence; the government provides a handy Pension Finder service for just these occasions.
